Hi all, first time brewing cider and was just wandering whether I need to add more apple juice or water to the bucket? I’ve got a 4 gallon bucket and it’s about 3.5 gallons full. It’s got an airlock but will the air spoil it before I rack it off in a couple of weeks time?

Thanks

If primary fermentation , then no worries. Some folks just ferment in an open bucket with a towel over it to keep the bugs out.
